Subject Question regarding Module Configuration Processing
Date Sun, 27 May 2001 05:08:23 GMT
Consider the following sources (Note that I have cut out some code for

static int direc_handler(request_rec *r) {
	struct info *direc;
	// Commented out the following, but it holds the information
	//direc = (struct info *)(((void **)(r->per_dir_config))[ 0]);
	direc = (struct info *)ap_get_module_config(r->per_dir_config,
	return DECLINED;

static void *all_hooks_create_dir_config(apr_pool_t *p, char *dirspec)
	struct info *cfg;

	cfg = (struct info *) apr_pcalloc(p, sizeof(struct info));
	return (void *)cfg;

	all_hooks_module = {

I am assuming the code I wrote above is correct.  Here is what
happens.  The module is loaded dynamically.  Apache calls
create_dir_config.  This returns a value.  Then Apache calls my
handler, which in turn attempts to retrieve the directory
configuration information.  Note that the create_dir config and
handler are working from the same URL, which is not the root url.  The
problem is that when I attempt to retrieve the directory information I
get nothing.

So off I went to the sources and here is something I found.  When a
dynamically loaded module is loaded the function ap_set_config_vectors
is called.  This is not the problem.  But if you do a back trace the
function is called from urlsection.  Then going into that function and
one line above you will see the ap_set_config_vectors call, but notice
the module being used, core_module.  This means I am setting the
directory information for the core module.  If I then go back to my
function direc_handler and retrieve the directory information using
the base of core_module, which is zero, I do indeed get my correct cfg

Now I thought ok, maybe I doing something wrong.  So I checked how
mod_include.c is called up and it gets called from the function
create_default_per_dir_config.  This function is implemented to use
the module index defined. 

So my question is, is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?  Note
that it only seems to happen when the module is loaded dynamically.
